Meeting room and hot desk booking software for Outlook earns Microsoft certification – one of only 7 programs in Europe

After a long quality and stability test, Resource Central, the resource booking tool from Add-On Products, has earned the right as one of only 7 programs in Europe to be certified for Microsoft Windows 2003 server, Enterprise Edition.

This certification can be seen as documentation that Resource Central has been developed to fit into the Microsoft platform while maintaining the highest standard of reliability, security and supportability. The right to use this Microsoft certification logo has only been granted to 6 other applications in Europe.

Resource Central is the premier resource booking tool for companies using Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Exchange. Resource Central is an effective tool which helps organizations to minimize their time usage on booking meetings, work spaces and any other corporate resources. Resource Central keeps track of extra services such as catering and room set up while keeping internal communication at an optimal level.

With Resource Central it is easy to arrange meetings with all associated services such as catering, table plans, technical equipment etc. By automatically notifying service providers of their orders and tasks, Resource Central ensures a professional meeting while keeping the budget at a minimum.

Add-On Products has used over 2,100 development hours in order for Resource Central to pass the certification process. The booking tool is globally scalable, is currently available in 7 different languages and has been sold to more than 250 companies in 10 different countries.

Among the thousands of daily Resource Central users, there are no less than 29,000 at Calgary Health Region in Canada. This customer is arranging and booking many hundred meetings every single day. UK customers include Aegis Media, Ketchum, Rexam plc, and Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park to name a few.

Book meetings and workspaces directly through Outlook

Resource Central is closely connected to the email and calendar functions in Microsoft Outlook and works as a totally integrated part in Microsoft Outlook. With such a level of integration it only made sense to have Resource Central complete this certification process.

We meet large enterprises who have company policies not to install products which haven’t undergone this certification process, states Travis Campbell, Add-On Products Channel Manager.

"With a product so highly integrated with Outlook and Exchange, it is essential to have this Microsoft certification. Without this official statement of trust from our most important partner, Microsoft, users can feel left at risk of installing a potentially malicious product that could compromise their entire messaging system."
